Directions for DIY Flower Pen

First, pick up your pen and artificial flower. Hold the flower and pen next to each other with the flower end and non-ink side of the pen facing in the same direction. Once they are aligned, use your scissors to cut off the stem at the part where the cap first meets the pen. This is so you can still close the cap onto the flower pen, prolonging its use.

While continuing to hold the pen and flower together, grab your floral tape and begin tightly wrapping it around the two parts, starting at the end with the ink. Continue this process until you have reached the end. Then, use your scissors to cut the floral tape from the spool and finish wrapping.
